The producers of the hit program, Bondi Vet, have revealed TV’s newest vet stars, following a nationwide search.

After thousands of nominations and tens of thousands of votes, the show’s creator, WTFN Entertainment has announced that the job will be shared by four vets.

Dr Alex Hynes (Queensland), Dr Danni Dusek (Victoria), Dr Lewis Hunt (New South Wales) and the winner of the public vote, Dr Peter Ricci of Western Australia are officially the new Bondi Vets, as announced at a special launch event at the iconic Bondi Icebergs Club today.

“After an exhaustive search process and extensive camera testing of the final four, it was impossible to single out any one candidate,” said WTFN’s Director of Content, Steve Oemcke.

“Each of the four new Bondi Vets has a unique skill set and story to tell,’’ Mr Oemcke said.

“Their love for pets and animals shines through and there is a great chemistry between them.

“Their work in front of the camera has been outstanding, and we know that fans will really get behind them as they take the show in an exciting new direction,’’ he said.

Mr Oemcke said a number of media organisations were vying for the new-look Bondi Vet which would continue to be distributed to more than 180 countries around the world.

How do I toilet train my cat

I rescued an adult female, desexed cat six months ago. Apparently she’s always been an outside cat. I have another cat who is mostly indoors and I would only let outside during the day if I was home. Luna didn’t like being indoors and wasn’t using the litter tray properly. I had her confined in the bathroom for a few days to get use to it and she would go next to it, rarely in it. She will sometimes use a tray otherwise will urinate or poop on the floor. I am at wits end. I have two trays, I’ve changed the type of litter, put dirt in the tray, picked up the poop and put it in the tray to show her that where it goes. I’ve used spray in the tray to attract her to want to use the tray. I bought felliway diffuser which is meant to calm cats and have also used the rescue remedy drops in her food. I’ve recently moved house where there is a cat enclosure so she can go in and out when ever she pleases but still goes in the kitchen (as I now close the bathroom door when she started going to the toilet in there), but tonight I noticed she’s been going in the spare room if anything is left on the floor which is carpeted. So I’ve now cleared that whole room to prevent her from going to the toilet. She is still going in the kitchen. I’ve tried cleaning the area and eliminating her scent by using water and vinegar then once dry use bi carb soda and hydrogen peroxide and it has made no difference. She’s been tested for a bladder infection which came up negative. I love animals. I have another cat which she now gets along with and two dogs which she is still getting use to. I don’t know what else to do and I don’t want to give her up but feel like I will have no choice.
